July 10 Day 2
 our day started about 7 am. Once we found our spot last night and hooked up the electric we all fell fast asleep. We were pretty tired from the drive. After miles and miles of lonely road it was nice to stop. A decent nights sleep and ready for day 2.  After coffee and breakfast for all we again were on the road. Today's destination is Rifle Colorado. Driving through Utah was pretty much the same as Nevada although closer to Utah the terrain changes. Large red canyons- much like  the Grand Canyon. Some spots are spectacular. The road is fairly winding  and some 6% grades. All that winding and twisting combined with hot stuffy air again made Andrew car sick. Poor kid has had a tough go of it all day.  We got to Rifle about 730pm. The camp sight is off the main highway about 10 miles. Up and around and twisty again. Finally we get to the sight. On top of the hill over looking  the lake. Nice State park.  Andrew and I took a walk down the hill to the lake. Not much of a beach spot but it was nice. Andrew put his feet in to test the water he said it was cold. Not to cold though. Back up to the camp spot for some dinner. Mark and Anthony are taking their walk around. Andrew and I are enjoying the cool weather and the campfire.  Tomorrow  we head to Keystone South Dakota, where we will spend a couple days.  We will need to be on the road fairly early as this will be another long day of driving. Even though the speed limit is 65- 75 those winding roads can be tough, Mark is doing all the driving and so far a great job. NO troubles with the Rv at all. running like a champ.
